Every situation is unique, but just on the Positive side:

From the time I was 15 until age 40, I was taking the following: (not all at once, lol..but always on SOMEthing and usually a combo of at least two)

Valium
Xanax
Paxil
Wellbutrin
Prozac
Elavil
Stellazine
INderal
Buspar
Ativan

And yet, here I be. At age 40, took a MENSA I.Q. test and scored in the top 1 per cent of the population.

Peace,
Janine

LOL....

Point 1: admittedly, I'm a shameless braggart; and

Point 2: it wouldn't be possible for meds to destroy parts of brain function without also crippling cognitive capacity after long term use.

But I do realize each of us is different.

Love you,
:p

I still can't read...but that might be because I never tried...

I wish that prof heard me when I told him that.

There are some. I know that for the most part, meds have no long term effects or cause any damage. But I know that lawsuits have been filed against some drug companies for creating antipsychotics that cause permanant damage. Zyprexa comes to mind. Look into it a little further.
I wouldn't be so concerned about the effects on the brain. I would be more concerned about the effects on the liver and other organs.

I have been addicted to Prozac for 15 years. It was the 2nd worse mistake I ever made in my quest to get well. The first was getting Electro Shock "Treatments".
Look at the books by the great author Dr. Peter Breggin, such as "Toxic Psychiatry." He talks about the brain damaging effects of psychiatric "treatments."

It depends.

I had unexpected withdrawl symptoms of anxiety, etc, three weeks after stopping Paroxetine (Seroxat/Paxil).

I assume it was my brain/body/mind adjusting to being without it.
